The S-400 Triumph Missile deal is one of the most talked deals ever. During the visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to India in October 2018, India inked $5.43 billion deal for five advanced S-400, surface-to-air missile squadrons with Russia. And also, this is one of the biggest deals that India have made so far.

  • The radar of S-400 can track long distances of about 600 km.
  • The chief of Air Staff Air chief Marshal B. S. Dhanoa said that it will be a booster shot for the Indian Air force.
  • And above all, this defence system is very important for India keeping in mind the threats from the neighbouring countries Pakistan and China.
  • This is because Pakistan have 20 squadrons of upgraded F-16s and China possesses about 800 4th generation fighter aircrafts.
  • China is also the first foreign buyer of s400 missiles and Moscow has already started the delivery to Beijing.
